Zilean’s KDA ratio ([kills + assists] / deaths) of 3.0 is nearly equal to Nami’s ratio of 3.0, showing that Zilean may be just as central to his team's team fighting potential than Nami.

Zilean often has a slightly larger longest killing spree than his opponent does. Commonly, Zilean takes a similar amount of damage to Nami. This commonly reflects different amounts of tankyness, but it can also indicate that the champion with more health has less mobility and thus is unable to kite away from additional harm when poked or engaged.

Zilean commonly racks up a bit more CS than Nami. Champions that do not earn very much CS typically don't require much CS to be effective. Instead, they are able to scale properly off of their skills and stats alone. Yet, champions with scores of minion kills, such as carries, typically have to have a lot of items to be useful. In either case, work to exceed the averages displayed here to do well.
